A collection of proximity operators implemented in Matlab and Python.
Proximity operators have become increasingly important tools as basic building blocks of proximal splitting algorithms,
a class of algorithms that decompose complex composite convex optimization methods into simple steps involving one of the
functions present in the model. This website provides formulas for efficiently computing the proximity operator of various functions, along with the associated codes.
